My son was about 10 months old and had an older brother. We had a wagon we covered with white clothe and placed him in the wagon without the cover so everyone could look at him. He though that he was the king for that moment as he was pulled down the aisle.

I married when my daughter was 6 months old. So she was one of 2 flowergirls. My sister's SIL who was 7 pulled her in a wagon. And then my sister who was my MOH held her during the ceremony.

Your son may be a little big, but another...my cousin's SIL got this adorable old timey stroller and had one of the groomsmen push the ringbearer down the isle in it. It was sooooooo cute!

I saw this on TV somewhere can't remember now but it was so cute. They put the infant car seat in a wagon and had a made of honor or grandparent or somthing pull him down the aisle and it was all decorated and cute. He just rode down the aisle and was quite content in the wagon for a few minutes. The wagon was pretty deep too so the car seat sat down in the wagon. That sounds like fun!

same thing happened with a friend of mine they pulled down the aisle in a wagon all decorated with bows ect have flower girl or junior brides maid pull him bown and make sure you have a dedicated child care for him so you can pass off for dances and naps for him

We put my niece in a little red wagon that we had decorated with tulle and flowers and my son pulled her down the aisle, it was so cute!

I just got married on 9-19-09 with a 2 year old son and a 6 month old daughter.. Harely ( my son) walked down with my nephews and my oldest nephew carried my daughter down.. it was the best thing ever... Don't think about it just know in your heart what part you want your son to play... I wanted my kids to be the 2nd most important people and that is what we did.. Hope this is helpful.. Best Wishes to you all...

Maybe you could have one of your flower girls push him in an old fashioned looking, really pretty decorated carriage. Dress him in a suit and let him be the ring bearer (of course the ring will be somewhere on the carriage, but he would still be part of the whole thing???

I just got married last june and I got my mom ( it could be someone close to you ) to walk my 9 month old down the aisle and he sat with my aunt after that.

I hope it all works out and it will. Don't worry to much

I was married when my son was 7 months old. I had the best man hold him until the vows...then I held him doing the actual vows...and we performed a "family" marriage (I reworded some of the traditional wording to suit our needs). Then handed him back to the best man for the "kiss". I put "baby treats" in the my husband's pocket for emergencies. It was so cute...not a dry eye in the whole church.

My son was 4 months at my wedding, i had a teenage cousin of my husbands as a junior bridesmaid and she carried him down in his little tux.

you could put the ring on a ribbon in/on his itty bitty baby cummerbund? Someone could carry him down the aisle chair seat style?
